student devised performance / Rok Pogelšek, Lea Klančič
About the performance
A pensioner in a retirement home loses his memory. Is he really what others tell him he is? Has he really done something horrible? Why does the caregiver look at him so judgmentally? He remembers his mother's gentle hands holding lime tea... But, no! Mum had big hands with which she had hit him so many times. Wait... Who is he? And what is the truth?
The play raises the themes of psychological violence against the elderly in retirement homes and the question of one's own identity, while music connects everything.
